Rolex presents the Replica Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master, a classic marine watch, in a new 18ct eternal rose gold black model, equipped with a patented Oysterflex bracelet developed by Replica Rolex Watches UK. This innovation combines the robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with the flexibility, comfort and aesthetics of a rubber strap. The strap’s subtleties lie in the fact that the inside is made of super-elastic sheet metal, while the outside is covered with high-performance black rubber injection molding. The new Yacht-Master is available in two sizes: 40 mm in diameter and the new 37 mm size.
Developed and patented by Rolex, Yacht-Master’s new Oysterflex bracelet is a sporty alternative to metal straps that is as robust, reliable and water-resistant as its predecessor. The bracelet is as flexible and comfortable to wear as a rubber strap, but it is as durable as a metal bracelet. The strap is attached to the case and the Oyster clasp by flexible titanium-nickel plates. High-performance black rubber covers the metal plates, making them resistant to all environmental conditions and providing a durable and secure fit. For additional comfort, the Oysterflex bracelet is equipped with a patented longitudinal cushioning system that secures the watch to the wrist. The bracelet is also equipped with an 18ct eternal pink gold Oyster safety clasp to prevent accidental opening of the watch.
The Yacht-Master’s rotating bezel is fitted with a new black Cerachrom ceramic bezel, reflecting the essence of the Yacht-Master. The polished three-dimensional numerals and indices stand out against the matt bezel, allowing the wearer to easily read the 60-minute time record. For the first time, the black dial contrasts with the luminescent Chromalight hands and hour markers, while the luminescent material gives a constant blue glow, making it easy to read in both daylight and darkness.
The Yacht-Master’s Oyster case, water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft), is an example of sturdy elegance and perfect proportions, while the 18 ct eternal pink gold middle case is made in the Rolex Foundry. The winding crown, with its triple waterproofing system and triple-locking system, is screwed securely to the case, together with the triangular appliquéd caseback. The crown shoulders are integrated into the middle case. The crystal, made of sapphire, is not susceptible to scratching. A convex lens at 3 o’clock makes it easy to read the date. The water-resistant Oyster case offers optimal protection for high-precision movements.
